My darling baby boy is currently screaming, like full on red faced make yourself sick kinda crying. I fed him, walked with him, gave him a paci (which he promptly spit back out), put him in the swing, and pretty much everything else I can think of! NOTHING WORKS!! I'm gonna go insane! And better yet, his sisters should be up soon to nurse. This is probably just teething or a growth spurt, but HELPPPP!!!!

Could he be in some type of pain? Gas pain? How old? You could try giving him gas drops or gripe water (I think that's what it's called). I hope he settles down soon.

don't know how old, but the S's--swaddle, shhhsh, sway/swing, suck, stomach

we swaddled ours, layed them across our arms belly down (with us standing up) so that their face was where I could hold a pacifier in their mouth, sway back and forth and shhhhssh them.

Thanks guys! Hes 7 months. And yes I finally got some sleep, though my mom had to handle him while I fed his sisters.... I guess he wanted gma or something because after a few minutes with her, everything was fine! She put him in the swing and sang him to sleep. :)

Try holding him and making the sh sh sound over and over. Works for my 6 month old! Good luck

I usually swaddle her, lay her belly side down over my arm & stand somewhere with white noise. Like by the heater, by the dryer or shower & sway while gently bouncing.

Or bounce her on my knee with my hand on her belly with gentle pressure while holding her pacifier in
